Planning for our 2017 Be Great Camp has started and we want to keep you informed of the details.  Be Great Camp is a half day enrichment program separate from regular Club hours open to BGCCA members.  Be Great Camp will provide campers an additional opportunity to challenge themselves in learning new skills, exploring their passion, and building their character. 


Space will be limited to 45 Club members in grades Kindergarten – 6th for the 2017-2018 school year.  Be Great Camp will run 7:45 AM to 12:45 PM Monday thru Friday starting May 30th through August 18th.  The Club will be closed May 29th for Memorial Day and July 4th for Independence Day.  Campers will need to bring their own sack lunches.


The Camp fee for early bird registration forms turned in on or before April 28th will be $70 per week per child pre-paid in advance in four payments* for a total of $840.  After May 1st, the Camp fee for 2017 will be $80 per week for a total of $960.  (Be Great Campers who withdraw before the start of Camp can receive a full refund if and only if all camp spots are filled.)  (*Other payment plans can be requested and must be approved.)


It is important to note that you are committed to the entire summer and Be Great Camp fees are non-refundable.  You will not receive compensation due to a child’s nonattendance, misbehavior, or other scenarios interfering with their ability to attend Camp. Campers must be on their best behavior and engaged in activities during camp hours.  It is a privilege to be a part of

Be Great Camp and we hope that your child(ren) will join us in being GREAT in the Summer of 2017.


Only registered Campers may attend the Be Great Camp between 7:45am and 12:45pm.  Annual BGCCA membership is inclusive of our summer Club hours of 12:45 PM to 5:15 PM Monday thru Friday open to Campers and all active BGCCA members.


Registration forms will be available March 6th @ 8:00 am.  Early bird registration with deposit will close April 28, 2017.
